We ran away



We eat silently
and avoid each other's gaze
While our parents carry
The conversation 
We are supposed to be having

I am just happy to be here
eating with you.

Maybe the best we can do
is just share a glance 
in the hallway before we're
Even awake
Knowing the questions hide
behind uncertainty and fear

All one has to do is say the word
walls will crumble
light will shine through
And we will not be fools
Yet for now we run away
from each other
afraid of the truth

Hey, some of these aren't that great but what the heck. I just like writing how I feel in the moment so some of my poems might be confusing because I was confused in that moment. Maybe thats why I wanted to write a poem, to sort out my thoughts. Anyway, just read them and hopefully just one of them will bring you some kind of joy, or make you feel some kind of connection. Peace.>>>I also do star photography - probably why space works its way into a lot of my writing. http://mcb-photography.blogspot.com/ more…
